Thanks!

But the price: 63.50 / 76.20 :-( I don't know any students who would afford that.

That is an issue I haven't solved. I was quoted an asking price of 75 from a major publisher for my 2001 book Causal System Analysis, knew none of my students would ever pay, so I printed hard-bound hard copies privately for the university library and for people who wanted them, at a quarter the price, and left it on-line.

On other other hand, I don't know how to do that much better. The Fukushima book is currently being negotiated to cost about 40 (hard copy or electronic).

John Spriggs has a book out on GSN with Springer: http://link.springer.com/book/10.1007/978-1-4471-2312-5/page/1 Felix Redmill reviewed it in a recent edition of Safety Systems, and remarked on the steep price.

John Knight does best. His 2012 book http://www.crcpress.com/product/isbn/9781439862551 costs about 32 = 37.50
